    i made it today, it was delicious!!

    QUICK BREAD in 90 seconds!!!



    1 egg, beaten

    1 T. olive oil

    3 T. water

    1/3 c. CarbQuick bake mix

    2 T. Jennifer Eloff’s Splendid Gluten-Free Bake Mix: http://low-carb-news.blogspot.com/20...-splendid.html

    2 T. golden flax meal

    ¼ tsp. Splenda, granular (or equivalent)

    3/4 tsp. baking powder

    DIRECTIONS: Beat the egg in the dish you will bake this in. I used a 6″ ceramic quiche pan. Add the water and olive oil and stir again. Next add all dry ingredients and stir vigorously until smooth throughout. Microwave on HI for about 90 seconds or until center is dry and done. Remove and cool slightly. Note, it won’t be browned at all.

    Carefully tip/lift out of dish using a knife tip or spatula. Toast either under a broiler (on both sides), or if it will fit, in your regular toaster. Butter and jam it up as is for a biscuit like flavor. Slice laterally after toasting for sandwiches. Slice before toasting if enjoying as morning toast. For scone applications with added fruit bits, cut into wedges and toast without slicing laterally.

    Here is the link for the home made gluten free baking mix


    12/3 cups almond flour, (400 mL)
    (I use almond meal, i.e. ground sliced
    almonds versus almond flour)
    3/4 cup certified gluten-free oat flour (175 ml)
    2 tbsp coconut flour, (30 mL)
    (Bob’s Red Mill,® OR Aloha Nu®)
    3/4 tsp xanthan gum (3 mL)

    In large bowl, combine almond flour, oat flour (if you are intolerant to gluten-free oat flour then substitute another gluten-free flour), coconut flour and xanthan gum. In container with airtight lid, place bake mix and shake the container well to combine. When measuring oat flour (not necessary with the other ingredients) into measuring cup, make sure to tap the cup on the counter top and fill to the top to get the correct yield for the bake mix. Keep bake mix at room temperature for up to one month or freeze for much longer storage.

    i made mine in 3 little ramekins but could probably do 4 as these were as big as a cupcake!!!

    you do NOT need to grease or spray your ramekins, they come right out!!!

    whole on left, sliced in half in the center, and toasted on the right!

    i sliced in half, and toasted like a crumpet...O.M.G.......so good!!! i added some homemade sugar free lemon marmalade!!

    tomorrow i am making a sausage and egg "biscuit" with them!!

    1/3 of the recipe...1 biscuit or halved to make 2 crumpets equals =
    calories: 128
    fat: 12 grams
    carbs: 8.8
    fiber: 6.6 g
    NET CARBS: 2.2 grams
    protein: 7.2 grams

    tastes like bread!!! not "eggy" or rubbery at all!!

    i topped mine with some homemade lemon marmalade:
    this is how i make it
    wash 3 lemons...then i use a thin strip zester to remove long strips of lemon peel.
    cut in half, and squeeze out juice and as much lemon pulp as you can but no pith! or membranes.
    add to a small pot and cover with 1.5 cups of water and boil until lemon peel is soften about 10 mins.
    remove from heat and add your sweetener of choice to taste
    i used 6 tbsp SWERVE a sugar substitute but you could probably use splenda or stevia or xylitol
    stir until well blended and no granules are present
    in another tiny bowl, mix 1 packet gelatin with some hot water and dissolve
    then add to your lemon mixture and stir well
    taste for sweetness...i like mine a little tart....but you can add more if needed....just melt your sweetener in some hot water before you add.
    pour into a small glass container and it will thicken as it cools
    store in fridge.

    This is the thickness of HALF!!! its the size of a regular size crumpet!!

    Thank you thank you! (One for each of you) I was just trying to pull this into a format to save off. DH is doing low carb now so I will be making it for him until I'm on P4.

    this is creamy, yummy, warm and spicy!!! I LOVE IT!! And it is super super super fast to make!!

    i was inspired from this post:
    Quote: Indian Squash Soup

    Here's a recipe that was inspired by one suggested to me by my coach:

    1 IP chicken soup packet
    4 oz water
    2 c squash (zucchini or calabasa/Mexican grey squash)
    1-2 tsp cumin or to taste
    dash of cayenne powder or to taste
    1/2 tsp. curry powder or to taste
    1 tsp olive oil
    2 tbsp. reduced fat sour cream

    Dice and cook squash in about 4 oz of chicken broth in a sauce pan. Puree with an emersion or regular blender to desired consistency. Combine chicken soup mix with 4 oz or so cold water in a shaker cup. Add soup mixture, spices, and olive oil to squash and reheat. Turn off heat and add sour cream. Stir well.

    This tastes so good and it's very filling. You don't even taste the squash at all.


  • Such a great thread! I am enjoying the discussion, thanks for sharing.
  • Quote: Mmmm....making these tonite for lunch tomorrow! (whole potato puree packet, tho)

    Only one way to find out!
    I realize this was back in January, but did you try to bake these? Wondering if I made them ahead if they warm up nicely?
  • 42 pages and endless recipes later!!!,! Love it and thank you! I wasn't bored but love that I have all these options down the road.. I love how versatile the ip products are!!
